TOP TEN TUESDAY: Top Ten Favorite Characters in Fantasy Books

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is My Top Ten Favorite Fantasy Characters.

Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Such a loyal and sweet hobbit.

Elisa from Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae CarsonShe’s sassy and determined… which is a good combo if you want to save your kingdom from some unsavory people.

Marian from Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
She is a librarian and librarians are AWESOME! However, she was left out of the movie adaptation. What?!? Not cool at all. That is why books are better than movies.

Abe Lincoln from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
Gotta love Honest Abe as a killer of vampires. He’s the best!

Hermione from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Sometimes being a bookworm can get you and your friends out of trouble and save the world.

Matilda from Matilda by Roald Dahl
Oh, I wish I had her powers sometimes.

Grimalkin from The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Love that sarcastic talking cat!

The Cat from Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Apparently I have a thing for sarcastic cats who like to chit-chat with characters… hmmmmmm

Alice from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Alice loves fashion, is fun & kind, and seems like a cool friend.

Grandpa Joe from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Spunky old guy. He’s so cute.


  1. I agree on Alice, the cat and Samwise Gamgee. I think he was my favorite in the whole book. I love your genre choice and that’s a great list of characters. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  2. I really really really enjoyed Beautiful Creatures, but the names...the NAMES! They KILLED me! Mrs. English the english teacher, Mr. Lee the Civil War History teacher....Marian the Librarian. Ugh. Great book...horrible names. :D

    1. I know... the names... ugh! "Marian the Librarian" makes me want to beat my head against my circulation desk.

  3. OHHH I do love Marian from Beautiful Creatures!! I was actually really upset she is not in the movie because I think she is an important secondary character!

  4. I have Samwise Gamgee on my list too :)
